Winterpractise, oil on MDF, 15x 30 cm, Astrid Volquardsen, 2017
This was done shortly after I returned from a glorious morning at the Alster.
I was surprised one morning by a rowing boat for racing practice and its accompanying motorboat. O I just now how they felt. The rowing club in sight they longed on one hand for the end of agony and the end of practice. But on the other hand I now very well from my active canoe time that these are very special moments you don’t get often. The surface as smooth as glass and in the background Hamburg slowly waking up. Magic moments.
If it were a canoe out on the lake I would change instantly.
